IN MY CLOSET #1


Alright guys. I've got something new for ya and I'm nervous. This is my first outfit post! I have been wanting to do this for a long time, but have been hesitant. It seems like the older I get, the more self-conscious I am and the more uncomfortable I am in front of a camera. But I do love fashion and playing dress up, so I thought I would just go for it.  I was so freakin' nervous. But remember here when I said I was taking more risks (big and small) and having more fun?? Well, here goes...





Dress: J.Crew | Watch: Michael Kors | Necklace: The Vault Jewels by Gaby (available upon request) | Clutch: Vintage from here | Sandals : Banana Republic (circa 2004) | Bracelets : Banana Republic & Target

I wanted to keep this shoot very "me" and very simple. I usually just wear one statement piece- which here is the dress that I recently found on sale. I heart the color... I still have no clue how to apply makeup- well just lipstick and gloss, so that's all I wore. I kept the jewelry simple since the color of the dress is so bold. But that's just me. Perhaps I will step outside of the box in future posts...

Oh a note about the dress: It's 2 sizes smaller than my normal size. I was THRILLED until the salesperson quickly burst my inflated ego and told me that the dress runs big. Gee thanks. Anyway, get a size or two smaller than your normal size if you purchase it...

A big thank you to my friend Dana of Dana Eason Photography for telling me to put my arms here, turn my face there, put my feet there, move over two inches and to smile! :)
